Mitzie is an undocumented immigrant and came to the US at the age of 5. As an only child, she is the pride of her family for receiving her masters in Psychology and Social Work.
Having grown up in the Inland Empire she has experienced first hand the terror that ICE brought to our communities. She is a strong activist with the Inland Empire Immigrant Youth Coalition and works in organizing with the feminist and LGBTQ communities. “Nobody is safe from ICE, whether you’re an organizer, or a parent with citizen children. I’m doing this for my cousin who was deported after he was detained on his way to work. I’m doing this to keep my community safe!”
